Edublogers As a Network of Practice

Terry Anderson, Virtual Canuck, Mar 02, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Terry Anderson bumps into the idea of the "network of practice", a concept attributed to John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid, which is the idea of a collection of people not so tightly bound as a 'community of practice', but which nonetheless share some of the same characteristics. He then applies this analysis to the education blogosphere and - not surprising - find that it fits. Except. As commentator Scott Leslie points out, "there is no singular "network of edubloggers," indeed what I find constantly amazing is when I come across another self-styled edublogger with whom I share absolutely NO points of connection."
